new york. i can criticize new york. somebody from boston wants to come down to my city, they're going to have a problem. so the feels was mitt romney was never one of them. bobby jindal has always been. he was elected -- he was really embraced by the tea party ways. and you know, so he's -- he's really -- appeals to the entire electorate at this point just in terms of where he's come from. the positions he's held. he's not big on state-based exchanges. he's already rejected those. scott walker is probably going to come out against them on friday. >> john: i think you're right. >> john casey is make his own decision tomorrow as well. he's very well respected. going to be very hard for the conservative movement to say he's far too moderate. >> john: zeke miller, it is a pleasure to have you here. we love you in new york, boston. you're always welcome. a few yankee fans may not like you but we mets fans treasure our boston fans. follow you at zeke j miller on the "buzzfeed." thanks for coming in. >> thanks for ha
headquarters in boston. welcome to "fox news sunday." >> chris, thanks for having me on. i am trying to advantage what david axelrod will look like next week without his mustache. it's fun to think of. >> chris: we will see. let me ask but david axelrod, he says you are desperate in pennsylvania and vulnerable in florida. your reaction? >> well, desperate four years ago, this weekend, president obamma was campaigning in indiana. today, governor romney is campaigning in pennsylvania. i don't think campaigning in states where we haven't won since 1988, 1984 and 1972 are exactly acts of desperation. it looks like the map is starting to expand drastically in our favor. it is nothing we are doing. it's governor romney's message. when you talk about florida. for them to spend more money there is a little bit like barack obama's government -- they want to throw money at a problem and hope it if i cans it. but at the end of the day, governor romney will carry florida by a significant margin. >> chris: let me ask you about the point he made. money is one thing, the candidate's time is the mos
ed gillispie. he's in boston. how are you? >> i'm good. great to be with you tonight. >> so from what i understand, internal polling, dead even in pennsylvania, governor romney is going to go back to pittsburgh tomorrow? >> gov. romney will be in pittsburgh tomorrow and cleveland. we have momentum and we are going to capitalize on that. we are going to keep the intensity up of our voters. we've been impressed by the gaps we see in all of the polls where republican voters, romney voters much more likely to vote than president obama's voters. and pennsylvania i think is going to be a big, big win tomorrow night. a lot of people will be surprised, but i won't be because when you look at where the president is and public polls across the country, when you are the incumbent president of the united states this close to election day and you are as far below 50% as he is, you are in deep trouble. >> basically the president is at 48%. if you look at all the polls, you average them all together, that's pretty much where he is. two states you know very well is the state of ohio and the state of
, their boston headquarters. wrap your head around that. karl rove whose failure to win victories at the helm of the cross roads had this defense on tuesday. >> he succeeded by suppressing the vote, by saying to people, you play not like who i am and i know you can't bring yourself to vote for me, but i'm going to paint this other guy as simply a rich guy who only cares about himself. >> remember the team romney and the republicans outspent team obama the democrats in the last three months of this campaign. actually in the entire campaign. >>> while president obama is already getting knee deposition in the second term issue, the fiscal cliff, he also had some house keeping to do in his cabin cabinet, mainly replacing a handful of high profile secretaries, including hillary clinton, tg, tim geithner, leon panetta. they're all expected to leave sometime in the next few months, possibly, even before the end of the year. secretary of state hillary clinton repeatedly said she's on her way out. >> i want to then take some time to get reconnected to, you know, the stuff that makes life worth living.
. >> laura: in the last three days. everyone from boeing, to cat pillar, lock keyed harr continue, boston scientific, these are thousands of jobs if you add them all up. >> yeah. >> laura: what's going on here. a lot of them citing obama care because of the implementing cost of that. >> nothing related to the election of the president should be a reason why anybody is going through layoffs. it's not like it was a surprise that the president could have won re-election on tuesday. that should have been something that people maybe put a part of their first alert forecast for a long time. and anybody who needs to lay off workers right now, they had systemic problems long before tuesday. >> laura: businesses aren't making legitimate business decisions exside technology, bristol myers. >> they might be legitimate business decisions but it's not because of the results of the election. come on. >> laura: some of them are actually saying it's the result of the election. >> they may be saying it to absolve them of their own i how the business has or has not grown, really come on. >> laura: you thin

of that post-9/11 generation that served in iraq and afghanistan and joins me now from boston. joe, great to see you. tell me about what made you want to serve and you did two tours, i think? >> that's right. one in iraq and one in afghanistan. >> and one in afghanistan. you, obviously, we've known for you for a long time. your parents, doris kearns goodwin, and your father, of course, are well known to many of us. but you were unusual coming out of harvard. what about your -- the men and women with whom you served and how they are readjusting to life back home. >> absolutely. i think there's no doubt that the six years on active duty, over the course of eight that i spent in the army was incredibly valuable. i got a lot more out of it than i put in, because i got to serve with a group of men and women whose dedication to duty, honor, and country, their dedication was so inspiring. and i think there has been a trough transition for a lot of people coming home from these conflicts. you know, it's not just sort of the things you have to see or the actions you have to take, but it's also the
in boston a week ago in defeat. today we finally heard from him. but i guess we wish we hadn't. the new york times reports on a 20-minute conference call he held today with his national finance committee. during the call he blamed the loss on president obama's gifts to minorities and young voters. the times says, quote, mr. romney said the president had followed the old playbook of wooing specific interest groups, especially the african-american community, the his panic community, and young people. mr. romney explained, with targeted gifts and initiatives. in each case they were very generous in what they gave to those groups, mr. romney said. our strategy worked well with many people. but for those who were given a specific gift, if you will, our strategy did not work terribly well. he thinks he lost because of so-called gifts? this shows just how clueless he is. joining me now is dr. james peterson, professor at lehigh university and a contributor to the grio.com. let's bring back in nia malika henderson of the washington post. thank you for joining me. >> thanks, rev. >> starting with you
. 70s and 80s in florida. but still chilly up in to boston 46 degrees. it's all about the rain, though. it's moving onshore. heavy rain at that, through california. and actually a series of storms will bring days and days of rain with several inches of rain each day possible through the west coast. but look at the eastern half of the country, from the plains, all the way down into the southeast, up to the northeast, we are looking for a good deal of sunshine. but a closer look at some of the rain across san francisco, moving up into northern california. we will see pockets of heavy rain, and also some mountain snow. we could see several inches of mountain snow out that way through the course of the weekend, and into early next week. but across the east coast, we are going to see a lot of sunshine, temperatures topping out in the lower 50s, and then for your sunday forecast, basically a carbon copy of today, still pretty nice across the eastern half of the country, and still dealing with more heavy rains out west. alex? >> okay, dylan dreyer, many thanks for that. >>> beating the deadli
in boston. the conservatives never trusted him. they didn't even trust him when he got the republican nomination back in the spring of this year. the point is these individuals are opportunists, both on the republican side and also on the democratic side. they don't care about loyalty. they don't care about making sure that the best guy wins. what they care about is a paycheck. it's despicable, quite frankly. >> erin, let's take a look at this from both sides. looks like the hard right is saying, stop pushing us. it's not our fault. this guy wasn't a great candidate. moderates and pragmatic people are saying, oh, no, it's just -- you're too far right, too tough on women, too tough on minorities, too tough on latinos, young people. take a look at this guy, chris chocola, president of the conservative club for growth. he wrote today, quote, if you're a republican who yearns for the days of arlen specter and charlie crist you might welcome a return to gop insiders meddling in primaries but if you prefer republican party of toomey, rubio and cruz, you should be leery of the folks in washi
was in city hall in boston 44 years ago complaining about people who wanted a swimming pool in a neighborhood and they complaining because the dump trucks were coming in and out digging out the swimming pool and it was bothering them, and i complained to an old security council. he said, hey, kid, ain't you heard the muse? everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die. i think that's what i get from too many of constituents. they want us to cut the deficit, but don't raise my taxes and don't cut this and don't cut that and expand this and expand that. we do our best, and i'm not troubled by our inability to do what some of the them want us to do, which is impossible. >> i'm a little troubled sometimes by the thoughtlessness of some people who are quick to criticize anybody without differentiating between those who trying to do their best, but elts hard to argue with american people generally when they look to washington and see the mess that we're in right now. it is also true, as everyone here has said, that so many extent that reflects the will of the american people who want it

of contentious colonies united. so to begin you're in boston. what's your fundamental thesis? >> the american republic is born partially in a tax revolt. this is the at a party site where they threw the at a over because they didn't like the tax system. so this has been a fundamental debate and argument from the beginning of the american republic. we come back today to exactly the same sorts of issues. >> country men... reporter: well, not exactly the same. the at a parties of the past included smugglers protesting england having lowered the tax on tea, threatening their contraband business. between legend and fact, legend usually wins. the fact is as between paying now or paying later, americans have just about always preferred debt to taxes. debt to pay the very first army, for example. this is the spot on the cambridge common where, leng end has it, general washington first amassed his troops under a now dead elm and faced the basic question of government economics. >> how was going to pay them? how is he going to feed and clothe them? where will they get their clothes? that's a question w
